The Fellowship program in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine is a three-year program designed to satisfy the requirement for certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine in the subspecialties of Pulmonary Diseases and Critical Care Medicine. We are one of the largest programs in the United States with over twenty fellows in various forms of Pulmonary and/or Critical Care Medicine training. A two-year fellowship in Pulmonary Disease only is not offered as part of this program. The program is open to graduates of approved American or Canadian Internal Medicine residencies, who satisfy eligibility criteria for board certification in the specialty of Internal Medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine. The fellowship works closely and in conjunction with the accredited program in Internal Medicine at Henry Ford Hospital.

Programs available

  • Pulmonary and Critical Care: Three years.
  • Interventional Pulmonary: A dedicated one-year program (for applicants who have completed a Pulmonary and Critical Care Fellowship)

Goals and objectives

The overall goal of the Fellowship programs in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine is to provide trainees the intellectual environment for acquiring the knowledge, skills, clinical judgment, and attitudes essential to the practice of pulmonary and/or critical care medicine. Both the faculty and the sponsoring institution are fully committed to provide the educational program, resources, and facilities to meet these goals.

General description

The three-year program is designed to meet the needs and interests of individuals preparing for a career as a Pulmonary/Critical Care specialist in either a community or an academic setting. Each of the three years is clinically oriented with an increasing opportunity to pursue specific areas of interest as fellows proceed from Year I to Year III. The fellows are exposed to a wide spectrum of patients at Henry Ford Hospital, a tertiary and quaternary care hospital. The fellowship training is divided into one-month rotations in a wide variety of settings, with the option of longer periods for research experiences. In addition to these rotations, all fellows maintain ambulatory continuity clinics in Pulmonary Medicine throughout their fellowship.
